Electric Tron Light Cycle – Now Available

If your childhood was anything like mine, you probably spent a fair amount of time dreaming of the day, far off in the future, that you could buy a Tron Light Cycle and use it as your daily driver. Well, that day is here. 2010 has now officially become the future. Only 5 of these bikes will be built and the purchaser will have the option of selecting either a high performance all electric drive-train or a high performance gasoline engine/transmission. There will be one built in each colour and the Parker Brothers swear they will build 5 and 5 only, to ensure the value doesn’t decline for the 5 people ready to spend $35,000 USD to live out their childhood dreams.

From the builder;

Now, about the bikes themselves, the wheels are custom made 22″ x12″ dual hubless wheels with custom made tires (Hoosier is custom making 5 sets just for us specifically for this project). (Buyers will have the option of additional tires as needed) The frame is 2″ cold rolled and boxed hardened steel with carbon fiber/fiberglass bodies. Accent colors are neon glowing from behind frosted plexiglass and can be turned off or on with the flip of a switch.

Unlike the “Batpod” replica, the “Lightcycle” is being built for everyday street use. Each bike will come with a manufacterers build sheet and a certificate of title with purchase. Each bike will come with either a high powered electric motor or a high performance gasoline motor and transmission depending on the buyers needs. Be the envy of everyone who sees this bike as it will make motorcycles as you now know them seem like antiques on the road. No future “Lightcycles” will be made to ensure the value of these custom motorcycles in the coming years. They will get individual vin numbers at first order 001 to last 005 as well as the original prototype vin number 000.

The back cover opens up at the push of a button and there is a neon glow that exits from the back of the bike to resemble the lightcycles colored light trail from the original game. These bikes will also come with a TRON style helmet (Not DOT Approved) and all bikes will be available within 6-8 weeks of contract. A nominal deposit will be required to start the build and you will receive a youtube uplink to follow the progress of your individual bike until completion. Please contact us if you have questions and we can iron out the details before starting your build.

$35,000 isn’t actually that bad when you realise that a Mavizen or MotoCzysz EP1C electric motorcycle will cost about the same or a little more and as cool as the Mavizen and EP1C are, they aren’t freaking Light Cycles. The Parker Brothers also built a BatPod racer that works and was recently sold via Ebay so it’s safe to say this isn’t a cash grab by a fantastically enterprising Nigerian prince. If we had $35,000 burning a hole in my pocket I’d already be on the phone, sadly it looks like I am going to have to settle for stealing one.

Holy.Fucking.Shit. I hope they publish the names of the people who buy these so I can track them down and mug the shit out of them. the jail time would be worth it if I even got just one ride.

You can buy something similar called the x tracer that is running in the Automotive X Prize. The Tron Light Cycle was what I thought of the first time I saw them. Price tag $70,000. Made in Switzerland.

You’ll need some luck to avoid the tickets you’ll get riding this thing!
